[development] displaying all menus regardless of access

With respect to the first part of your post, there is one way I can 
think of to accomplish this:

If you create each menu item as an absolute link (e.g., 
http://www.example.com/node/1), it bypasses the access checks. This is 
technically a bug; it's in the tracker, and will likely be fixed for D7. 
However, it works for now.

It would be nice to see an option for menus such as 'Hide links 
unavailable to user' or similar that allowed the access-based showing 
and hiding of menu items.
